-----------------------
Children can be cruel to those kids who operate outside the norm, and labeling may call attention those kids. But as children become more world-wise at earlier ages, this may pass, and tolerance come to be the norm. The larger problem tends to be with intolerant adults.

Learning disabled is a relatively new label, and there are, sadly, old school educators who refuse to adapt new teaching methods to accommodate LD children.

The Pros of Labeling is that it brings funding to the educational programs and brings in supports that are needed for the children to be successful. However, the cons are that is draws attention to the children and labels them as Special Education and as we all students can be cruel to one another.
